Black Dog Brew Co Chomp NZ Pale Ale

Crofty's Beer Blog

Chomp NZ Pale Ale is produced by three brewers out of a small brewery in Wellington, New Zealand, Black Dog Brew Co (not to be confused with . Given the proximity to Beervana later this week, this seemed the perfect beer to grab out of the fridge this evening.

The beer pours a gold to amber colour, nice white tightly packed head. very clear with a high level of clarity and medium carbonation. quite a nice citrus aroma, with a background of sweet caramel malts.

Definitely a sweeter flavour than other pale ales, the bitterness is definitely on the back end of the palate, with a lingering sweetness on the finish that I’m not normally used to with Pale ales that feature a citrusy hop character. It’s almost a hybrid between the maltier English style pales and the West Coast American Pales and I’m quite enjoying the balance.

Definitely worth a look…
